    2. Restore the database to destination.

    3. Login to server where deployment manager is installed.

    4. Use important option yo important the restored database as a new organization.

  • just to add to above post, CRM organization database holds the customization and data. So a single restore of database will move everything together.

  • Hello,

    If you are just interested in copying data from your source org to target org, you can use instance adapter.you need to be sure you have same customization available in both system and better to keep both system updated with Rollups.

    How do i make both systems with same customization? do i  need to create each and every customization from start?:O or is there any easy to transport all customizations to target system.

  • Microsoft introduced Solution feature in MS CRM 2011, which is a way to combine your customization, dll, reports, chart etc... and export into a single file to take to another environment.
